Wax used for making 'Dhokra' Products is of two types:
• Bee wax:
The Bee Wax is extracted directly from the hives available in the forests. The wax is heated in a pot over a fire. The molten wax is filtered through the cotton cloth into another clay pot filled with water. This wax is used in traditional wax technique.
• Candle Wax:
Other type of wax used is Candle Wax. As candle wax breaks easily, it is mixed with coal tar & incense stick powder.
